Issue 011. 2013 July/August Bible.org Translator's Newsletter
New Site Design
The past couple months have been very busy ones for us here at Bible.org. We have upgraded our hosting software and completely redesigned the site. One of the nice improvements that relate to translations is the ability for translated articles to show up in their own correct series. For example, all the articles from the now completed Kenneth Boa series and this Bob Deffinbaugh series can be viewed together on their own series pages.
This last couple months have resulted in 4 new articles for translations being added to the site. Thank you for your hard work Jenny and Mariza!
Bob Deffinbaugh, 2 Samuel series, David’s Return to Jerusalem (2 Samuel 19:9-20:26)
Steve Cole, Hebrews (PDF posting)
Hints and Tips
Tip: have you ever wondered how to give feedback on the English or Chinese versions of the NET Bible?
A convenient interface in our Study environment allows one to do this quite easily. At the bottom of the study environment click on the grey “Report Problem” link. Then click on the button for "Add a comment" on the Translation. In the page that loads there is the opportunity to change the language of the version one is commenting on (default English). Once the correct language is chosen, simply input the passage the comment will refer to. Then click on the "Add Comment" button at the bottom of the page and you will be set to give us the feedback on the NET Bible English/Chinese translation.
Know someone else who is bilingual?
If you know of anyone else who would have the time and skills to translate articles for Bible.org please consider recommending this ministry to them. Sometimes the most obvious gifts (like preaching or being a leader) are not the ones with the most impact or need. This is a real opportunity to meet a need and impact thousands and thousands of people with the truth of God's Word.
Need help, have questions, or prefer to meet in real time?
I am available and would love to answer any questions you might have. We do have a section on our Group page, but you can always send me an email! I can also be available through Skype for a voice or chat conversation. Simply let me know through email that you would like to talk and we will get it worked out.
